Merkley is done.  The Senate is quite now.  While we wait for the next speech,  C-Span is playing the Violin Sonata in B-Flat Major by the Salzburg Mozarteum Orchester.

Day Two
And we're back for day two.  What a day that was.   We'll have to check who got the 2,3,4am slots but apparently, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) got the 5am spot.  Perfect choice -- he's even more effective than NyQuil.

If you want to read through yesterday's post, it's here.   Otherwise, stay tuned.

Expect more protests in the Capitol coming up as leftist groups mobilize:

Whether or not the Hart Senate Building is open, we will still meet there at 9:00am today. We will direct you to our training space where there will be a full training and a range of actions for everyone to take.We’re in this until the very end.We have to be.#CancelKavanaugh https://t.co/D9hbJLh9fV

Too bad the Montana senator can't "attend" by video conferencing and cast his vote that way.  Or maybe vote by proxy? 

I have no hostility toward him or his daughter.  How the H were they going to know the Dems would muck up the process so badly that the senator has to choose between his duty and attending his daughter's wedding?  Sorry for the predicament he is in.  If that idiot Murkowski hadn't decided to vote Present, maybe his vote wouldn't have been needed.

Correct, they've been showing the female protesters, "we believe her, we believer her" and two women in hijabs in the crowd. I mean that's fine but they are probably still paid protesters and political operatives.

"The following ritual is a variant of my #MeToo spell, which may be found in my newly published book, Magic for the Resistance: Rituals and Spells for Change (Llewellyn Worldwide).

"Unlike the Trump binding spell, there is no need to coordinate the timing of this working. Do it whenever it is convenient, but please do it before the upcoming confirmation vote in the Senate. Many of us will be casting the spell at midnight (Eastern Time) on the evening before the vote if you wish to join forces with us."

It is odd that a Jew, and Soros is a Jew, would be funding the anti-Jew Leftist America. It is weird that a Jew would be the number one foundation of antisemitism in America.

How do you even process that? These Jew are just freakin' crazy people. They are like from different planet that we live on. Yea, man, sure! Let's kill all Jews, and the White people. Yea, sure, Why not?

Is Soros insane? I think he is...

I'll say it again (sigh).   Soros is a leftist first and foremost and above all else....like most leftists....

and a Jew dead last.

As for the 'insanity' theory.... he is insane with power.  That kind of money brings power and absolute power corrupts absolutely.  He craves even more of the power that his wealth has brought him.

 The crowd in front of the U.S. Supreme Court is tiny, looks like about 200 people (& most are onlookers) - that wouldn’t even fill the first couple of rows of our Kansas Rally, or any of our Rallies for that matter! The Fake News Media tries to make it look sooo big, & it’s not!

One of the way-excellent reasons we voted for Trump.  Straight talk.

And congratulations to Justice Kavanaugh. With Kavanaugh on board I’m hopeful now the court will begin that long road back toward the constitution.  :patriot:

Just got home from San Antonio. I am happy to report that I collected on a $1.00 bet I made with one of the liberals in my writing group. I bet him that Kavanaugh would be confirmed last week at the height of the crap fest. He said that $1.00 will hurt for a long time. Yippee!

Good luck on getting a liberal to pay up.

Jewish Democrats warn Kavanaugh seat will motivate them in November
The JDCA “is deeply disappointed, and issues a warning to Republicans who supported him."
By Michael Wilner
October 7, 2018

WASHINGTON — The Jewish Democratic Council of America reacted angrily to Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court on Saturday, warning Republicans that it would rally Jewish voters against them next month in key midterm races.

...

The Republican Jewish Coalition, meanwhile, issued a laudatory statement on Kavanaugh and warned that, should Democrats take the Senate next month, “Judge Kavanaugh could well be the last Trump nominee for any post to be confirmed.”
